About Designer Wayne Thompson
Fascinated by letters since he was a teenager, Wayne began with rub-down lettering and worked as a signwriter, photographer and journalist before settling into the design profession in the – *ahem* – late 1980s. After many years as Art Director, Wayne started Australian Type Foundry in 2001 and works full-time as a type designer, handletterator (technical term) and typography educator. He’s been running the popular Type by Hand series of handlettering workshops for several years, punishing the nation with his lame jokes.
